The Facts: Nearly 800 million people are living in hunger. That is 1 out of every 9 people in the world. 60% are women. Hunger is when a person is unable to eat sufficient food to meet basic nutritional needs. Rice is the major food staple for the Pacific and Asia and is critical in combatting the problem.
Rice Love is at the front lines by helping families need in India and Nepal. All bags are made in these two countries and provides jobs. For every bag you buy, we give a kilo of rice away to a family in need. Join the fight to help end world hunger by 2030!
